Design researchers help shape our products. We understand how people use Xero, then we work with cross-disciplinary teams to build the most delightful and effective experiences.
We plan, research, analyse, and share insights about the attitudes and behaviours of current and future Xero users. The design research team focuses on the problem identification part of the design process.
As a graduate design researcher, you’ll develop research programmes, conduct studies, analyse results, and report back to product teams.
The product design team challenges assumptions and ideas to make the software helpful and easy to use. We work through ideas and designs with customers, engineers, researchers, writers, and product managers, and we prototype experiences quickly.
What we need from you
You’ll be a great listener and able to put yourself in other people’s shoes. You’ll have an analytical side and a knack for crafting beautiful user experiences.
